. weather channel meteorologist jim cantore is here with us from ridgefield, new jersey, covering the storm. jim, how much do people have to worry next week? >> reporter: well, you can't let your guard down, it could come close enough to have impacts, it may not be huge but could slow the efforts here, these are the same computer models that we used for sandy, the one on the right is the american model, the one on the left, the european model. the one that nailed sandy's forecast as five days out, which is where we are with this storm. both of them developed the low pressure off the east coast and moved northeast, the american model is much farther east, less impact, but the european map shows coastal flooding at high tide, not to mention a chance of heavy rain. right now, brian, along with the cold front we dealt with, the temperatures are the coldest since sandy, dropping into the 30s, possibly the 20s since last night. and as you know, we still have a and as you know, we still have 3 million people without power, chilly nights. >> jim, we just voted we'll take the model on the right that
of the water that in the last go-around, hurricane irene came up to and over the lip of the seawall there, jim cantore has staked out the ground there. jim, we have been following your progress and that of the water lev levels all day. reporter: well, brian, the storm surge, the water rise, the level is 6.6, 2.2 higher than irene. so we're waiting for the high tide to come up. for example, irene was about here. all right? and what we could see is another two and a half, three feet here, major implications, if the water gets into the lower streets of manhattan, and also the subway system. and con-ed has the power to shut it down, and the mayor has to coordinate with the mta, the cross bay, the veteran's memorial bridge, the george washington bridge, just to name a few. they're huge bridges with massive traffic. and of course that was the only way to get around. it was either by car or cab. they were going to keep the bayonne, the 70 miles an hour wind gusts were anticipated to come up this evening through the midnight hour. now, they could choose to open it tomorrow if the winds die down, which
with the weather channel's jim cantore on the tip of lower manhattan. >> reporter: where i'm standing in about 24 hours, there's a very good chance i'll be standing here in waist-high water, if i were still standing here and i won't be. here it is on satellite as you mentioned, just a huge cloud canopy, currently about 523 miles to the south of new york city, there's a very low pressure to this so to the wind field is 900 miles wide this. s-path that we have seen for the past several days, brings the center within 100 miles of the the city. four to eight inches possible, the jersey shore, the south shore of long island. then six to 11 feet, this is what prompted the evacuation orders from the mayor of new york city. new york harbor on the north shore of long island dealing with six to 11 feet. the national weather in new york says this will be the highest storm surge ever in new york city, that's what they are predicting at the national weather service so far. look at the rainfall, we're up from last night. locally a foot in new jersey. the biggest difference this year is stream flows across penn
